USB port protection

ST offers specific USB port dataline and VBus® protection devices in a single package, covering the full range of USB devices. These protection devices are suitable for all USB lines including use in consumer (cell phones, smartphones, notebooks), industrial, and medical applications.

Features include:

  • Availability of all USB speed/versions such as USB2.0, USB3.0 and the µUSB universal port
  • Compatibility with VBus® up to 32 V
  • Compatibility with universal USB

Cost and service performance is guaranteed due to ST’s high-volume production capacity, integrated front-end and multiple back-end lines, as well as partnerships with major subcontractors.

Advanced USB ESD protection for cutting-edge microcontrollers

ST offers the industry’s widest range of ESD protection devices for microcontroller-based applications with USB interfaces:

  • USB 2.0 low and full speed, with the USBLC6-2 and -4 series ensuring robust ESD immunity up to 15 kV (contact discharge)
  • USB 2.0 high speed, with the USBULC6-xxx series whose ultra-low capacitance guarantees optimum signal integrity and ESD protection
  • USB 3.1 datalines and Type-C connectors with Power Delivery and Alternate Mode support, with single- (ESDAXLC6-1Bxx) and multi-line ESD protection (HSP061 series) operating at bandwidths up to 10 GHz
  • VBus® pin, kept safe from Electrical Over Stress (EOS) with the ESDA7P60-1U1M transient voltage suppressor featuring 700 W peak pulse power capability

To remove radiated noise from USB 2.0 high-speed and 3.1 links, the ECMF™ series combines both ESD protection and common-mode filtering.
